Recently we met questions about using parcel forwarding to buy electronics from USA. You can also find a lot of similar questions on so many forums and websites.
So today we’ll talk about things about buying electronics from USA with parcel forwarding service. The contents will include custom and taxes thing
This asker comes from Australia, he asks similar question just as one customer from New Zealand asked last time. At least we can see there’s growing demand of using parcel forwarding service from these 2 countries.
And finally, the asker couldn’t get an precise answer about if they could use the parcel forwarding service to buy electronics, because so many comments are issued by people who didn’t try it on, but also was trying to take a shot. Then the asker got a little confused and hesitate to use that parcel forwarding service to buy electronics. For some buyers who never try parcel forwarding, some answers look a little technical, I mean, a little complex to understand as too many data and custom things are mentioned. Some even answered with some terms and laws of Australia about import and export. This is also another reason why they hesitate to use this service, actually, the only thing they need to know is that the parcel forwarding companies have solved all these issues, the only thing you should care is the prices and the reputation of those companies.
Some answers mention the ability of those parcel forwarding companies on dealing with customers and taxes, as many parcel forwarding companies are exploiting tax free zones, but we’re not sure all of them have these capability to save much for the customers.
Some people mentioned shipping goods through Guam, because Guam enjoys a good position to help companies importing and exporting goods from China, India or any other countries, the answers suggest you try considering this way. Actually, you don’t need to care much about this, as that’s what the parcel forwarding companies should exploit and think about, that may become a good channel or route for them to ship all the goods, but you just need to care about which parcel forwarding company you should choose.
And it seems this asker also receives answer from some experienced buyers who use parcel forwarding very often. They suggest choose the best companies which have different parcel forwarding prices for different channels and routes, and take advantage of the best route for you. You may take it if they have a special route parcel forwading from USA to Australia and could handle the taxes thing very well.
Another method to solve all these questions is to send an e-mail or give a call to those parcel forwarding companies, and right now most of them even get online chat service, which you can find on their website homepage.
Another point you need to care about is to find everything about the parcel forwarding company you’re going to use and see if there’re too many flaws on search engine.
